Trade Mendenhall for Bowe?

Postby protein25 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 7:10 pm

I am in a 12 team non-PPR league. I have been offered Dwayne Bowe for Rashard Mendenhall. Here is my current team:

QB: Brees, Fitzpatrick
RB: McFadden, Bradshaw, Mendenhall, Tolbert, D. Thomas
WR: Heyward-Bey, James Jones, M. Williams (TB), D. Nelson, S. Rice

I feel like I have a number of good RB's and a bunch of so-so receivers. I know that Bowe has been hot as of late and Mendenhall just had a good game coming off of an injury. Is this a trade I should accept to upgrade my receivers?

Tough call. I mean in terms of value I think Mendy is worth a lot more than Bowe (Mendy probably early 2nd round pick and Bowe maybe late 3rd at best). So, on face value this doesn't look good, but your weakness is WR and your strength is RB, so this trade would actually improve your team. Although, Bradshaw is on a bye this week, so I would try to wait a couple days before pulling the trigger.
Also, if you start a flex position this trade wouldn't be so hot. Because then you lose your best starting flex option for the Wr upgrade.
Help me:
